Ernie Ball Reinforced (RPS) Electric Slinky
I use these strings since 2008, before that, I bought mostly D'Addario XL, sometimes Ernie Ball.
Well since I discovered them, I did leave her! They were advised by me Ropes Express for my guitars with Floyd Rose (a ltd kh-202 and Mockingbird ST), but weird Thomaan not recommend them for Pink Floyd ... strange!
Indeed, the peculiarity of these strings is that they are reinforced by a small shield at the bottom of the rope, just above the small ball, which makes them more resistant, especially for the game at Floyd as ropes to climb on Floyd one must cut the bottom of the rope to the top of the braid, where starts the shielding of these strings then. And it works! These strings can suffer any ill treatment, she will remain in place, although granted, and yet, none fart in my hands for my game, even after 8 months of intense gaming and abuse floydienne. They come in more than a rusting break! (And again, must be left several months before it rust!)

The sound that comes out of these strings is very good: bright, well balanced and accurate. In it was a good distortion sound very rich, powerful, aggressive. They are clearly apparent harmonics, and dive-bomb is not a problem. The palm-mute are powerful and accurate.
Amazing, these strings sound great on clean too! A beautiful round sound and warm (well if you play with EMG, ben non ca c on will be cold).
All this with unfailing resistance (of course better to change them every 4 months as a whole set of strings if you want to keep the beautiful luster of his early (Me, I change them every 6 months ^ ^) . The bends also going very well over the sound does not bleed.
These are strings rather adapted Hard / Glam Rock, Metal, Glam Metal, etc. ... short styles rather hard, where there are often as beautiful clean arpeggios good riff very powerful.

In short, the strings that sound in distortion as clean, powerful and precise, but harmonics and warm, rich sound which, and with a resistance of beef. What you ask for? Some criticize him may be to have a treble strings chouillat thicker than normal, but I just prefer!
The price was slightly higher: 9.50 € (2 € more than the average), but the price is worth it, especially now that sites like Thomaan starting to sell and what to 6 € for my / our greatest happiness!
I would do without hesitation that choice, since I'm separated for 2 years!
